I think I would really truly miss the smell of the occasional piece of warm French bread if it weren't for a gluten-free baguette I buy at Whole Foods (I think the brand is Against the Grain?) It makes the best garlic bread! It's a little eggier than most baguettes, but I actually prefer that.

That bread alone has saved me from missing anything bread-like. Even my non-gluten-free housemate likes it just fine.

Now if a perfect pasta would just come along...

ps. (don't get me wrong, there are plenty gluten-free versions I enjoy, but none matches a real semolina)

I can't stand the rice pasta, it's just not the same texture - but I find that the corn pasta is good, found at Trader Joes. Still searching for a good bread, Udis, Rudis, tapioca bread, yuck.

Against the Grain baguettes are like food crack.......once you have them, it's tough to not buy them. I think it is the best gluten-free French-type bread out there. It is delicious grilled and used to make bruschetta.

food crack :lol: indeed

I make crostini out of them. Cut them into 1 inch rounds on the diagonal, brush them with garlic /herbed EVOO and lightly broil quickly. 1-2 minutes.

Then, let them cool.

Slather them with some goat cheese and a dollop of marinated roasted peppers (make these beforehand---use yellow, red and green grilled or broiled peppers that have been seeded and cut into strips and marinated in some balsamic vinegar, EVOO, thyme, basil and oregano for a few hours--and placed in the fridge)

and you have a taste treat to die for.

The people who make toast? ..............will come over to your cubicle to see what smells so good.....!

LOL! This thread is like food porn :D

I'm traveling in China for work this week and I must say it's interesting ... they don't have a lot of processed foods here so I "think" I'm pretty safe. I'm sticking to veggies and meats... they do have awesome fresh fruits so I fill up at breakfast. One thing I noticed was they keep the cooked bacon on top of sliced bread. I could not for the life of me figure out why, but then I realized they are using the bread to soak up the grease. Sadly, this also means no bacon for Cory :(

I also brought some Lara bars and gluten-free pretzels to tide me over :D Every place I've eaten has been very accommodating when I ask for no sauces but they have no clue what gluten is...

HAHAHA!!!

Sometimes I go all out and roast garlic bulbs and let them cool and spread the soft

garlic with oil and melted butter all over the baguette before I lightly toast it.....

So, off to the store on the morrow!

Ohhhhhhh......that is so yummy! Looks like I'll be buying baguettes this week-end! :lol:

Have a good trip! I always wondered how easy it would be to eat gluten free in Asia, so you'll have to let us know more. What about the soy sauce or do they not use a lot of that? Dedicated woks? I haven't had Chinese food in years. The one place that has a gluten-free menu, P.F. Changs, does not have very good food, IMO. So I go without. Not the same as real Chinese food, either.

Gemini, I have AWESOME Chinese recipes if you are interested. They are authentic and taste as good or BETTER than eating out. Honest. Trust me!

Accidentally glutened myself last night at dinner. Had beef with "sauce" duuuhhhhhhhhhhh but only minor issues today. It was an interesting evening talking with my Asia co-workers on gluten issues :D Rather difficult to explain but I think I got the point across....

Traveling home tomorrow, it's been a really good trip and only 1 minor glutening... I call that a success!

    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back. 
    • Thanks for sharing with me.  I really appreciate it.  Honestly, after a glutening last summer (still do not know what glutened me), I did not eat out for a year!  The risk was too great as my healing time took 3 months (for symptoms to subside) and six months to regain lost weight.  Our recent vacation to Europe was worth the risk  as we traveled with our entire extended family, but we were extra cautious and ate only at celiac-approved places.  Otherwise, we "dined" at markets or ate the food we brought from home.  Thankfully, we did not get glutened (at least we don't think so!)  
    • I do not struggle with this and I was brought up the same way as you. I don't struggle because for many years off & on we didn't have a bathtub, only showers as well as this being therapy or medicinal for the skin - heck even for the muscles as I age. I figure I've earned my right to luxuriate or medicate with baths any time I've a mind to. My husband saw just how bad my dh got & NEVER begrudges me a nice long soak in the big soaking tub we now have.
    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet
